It was nice to see the sun this morning but the temperatures didn't rise much. I love this view - the morning sunlight casting blue shadows across the glistening snow and my favorite beech tree glowing golden in the background. I walked around the yard this morning with Evee. And she slid around - not being heavy enough to break through. That snow is covered in about a quarter inch of ice making it difficult to get around. You can't walk with a light touch - you have to be bold and firm and crunch right down.
Today I watched from my window as 3 young boys challenged each other to the farthest ride down the hill in my backyard. They worked that hill slick - taking them further and further. It was fun to watch. After they left I wanted to go try that hill myself... but I didn't. / the smell of the kerosene and the sound of spinning fire were really neat contrasts to the drips of the melting snow and the cold that nipped at our noses. 7 inches of snow got us 3 days off of school and it was a really nice break to have but now it's going to be extra hard to get back into the swing of things. i've had a nice time getting readjusted to being here but i'm definitely ready to get into this semester and see what it holds for me. let's just hope i don't bust it walking down the hill to my classes tomorrow.
